Magnum Chronicles: A Brief Visual History in the Time of ISIS
Magnum Photos is pleased to present its first newspaper, Magnum Chronicles: A Brief Visual History in the Time of ISIS, available for free at cultural institutions around the world, and for ninety-nine cents (to cover packaging material) + shipping on the Magnum Shop.
Magnum Chronicles will be included at no extra charge in any order that is placed through the Magnum Shop and contains a Book, Fine Print, Magnum Distribution, Contact Sheet or framed item. Offer ends May 31, 2018.
A Brief Visual History in the Time of ISIS is curated by one of Magnum’s photographers, Peter van Agtmael, and includes an essay and timeline by Peter Harling – an expert on the Middle East, formerly of the International Crisis Group, and founder of Synaps, a fellowships program for young professionals from the Middle East eager to tackle their generation’s social, economic and political challenges.
It includes over 40 images from the Magnum archive that traverse the history and effects of the fallout from ISIS and their actions over the recent past. “History and how we interpret it is constantly in flux, but there are moments that demand thoughtful reflection without expectation of definitiveness. Magnum Chronicles allows us to react to critical issues with a timeliness that is difficult in a full length book,” writes Peter van Agtmael.
